I'll believe it when I see it. Still on the fence in the first place about this game due to it being always online...

This does nothing for me. The game is still online-only.

Truth be told, I'd rather have micro-transactions than online-only.

just to be clear, the disagrees would like Online only better ?
which means to say you'd rather have online-only without microtransactions, than a game that you can actually play without having to be constantly connected to the internet, with microtransactions (which TONS of games already have)

Or was it just because it's distasteful to say "I'd rather have microtransactions than..." ?

I SINCERELY hope it's the latter reason.

Yeah I'm not going to buy this game since I'm only connected to the internet about 99% of my gaming time.

I'd take always online over microtransactions any day as long as all the content is accessible without any additional purchase. All multiplayer games are always online anyways so it's not that big a deal when you think about it. The only thing I'm concerned about is being able to still play if we get disconnected?? What will happen? Will it freeze, restart? Auto save? Allow us to continue to play until we reconnect? Lots of questions when it comes to always online.

That's great. Now how about that offline single player?

Im convinced it will be overloaded and they will have to patch it offline. Im hoping they change their mind because Im still pretty excited for it.
